Bachelor party for adventurers

An adventure should serve the group cohesion occasionally. And that is also an important goal of a Polterabend, right? Therefore, we have compiled some ideas for you, which is just right for an adventurous group.

Jetboat

Jet boating across the lake is something that is even more fun with friends and gets the adrenaline pumping.

But it still makes a lot of good mood and spoils you during your bachelor party with a wonderful view.

There are toboggan runs all over Switzerland - starting at the Kronberg in Appenzellerland and ending at Lucerne's local mountain Pilatus.

Bachelor party for puzzle lovers

Solving a puzzle together can really bond a group. For a tricky bachelor party, there are many ways you can challenge your group.

Foxtrail

There are over 70 Foxtrail routes in Switzerland in 14 regions and cities. You and your group have the task of keeping track of the cunning fox. To do this, you'll solve tricky riddles and get to know a city or town from a completely different perspective.

If there are more participants, you can split up and even compete against each other to see who can catch the fox the fastest. The Foxtrail is an ideal activity to promote cohesion and cooperation.

Escape Game Outdoor

Similar to Foxtrail, Outdoor Escape Games are about solving challenging puzzles and completing a mission. In the process, you will be equipped with important utensils that you will need during your game.

Escape games are therefore a great idea for a bachelor party, as you will be outdoors in the fresh air on a common mission and solve exciting puzzles. Whether you have to save the secret recipe of the St. Gallen bratwurst or try to close a magical portal with access to dark creatures from the past is not so important. The main thing is to have fun and promote group cohesion.

Escape Room Indoor

In bad weather or for a cozy group outing indoors, Escape Rooms offer a good change. Riddling, puzzling, discussing, following clues and having fun is very important here. During a given time you have the task to break out of the room in which you have been locked. You can only achieve this if you work together and solve the puzzles together.

Escape rooms can be found in most Swiss cities and if you want to move on, you have the opportunity to do so after a successful or failed mission.

Krimispass

With Krimispass, you take on the role of the investigator. Together you go on a hunt for clues and try to solve a mysterious murder case. The Krimispass adventure can be played at many locations in Switzerland. All you need is a smartphone, team spirit and some skill. You will not only encounter exciting puzzles and clues, but also surprising twists and developments.

Bachelor party for explorers

Discover Switzerland with your group and go on an adventure of a special kind.

City tour

How well do you know your own city? If you have never joined a guided tour in a city you know, or even don't know, and would like to organize a bachelor party, this might be a good opportunity. Throughout Switzerland there are countless exciting city tours, often divided by theme.

On special tours you will be guided through hidden alleys of a city by personalities from the past. Be it a maid from the 16th century or a real hangman. You won't want to miss the stories these characters have to tell.
